Grace Hotel The Santorini Cherry Tomato Changed My Life

Would it sound entirely ridiculous to say the Santorini Cherry Tomato changed my life? My first encounter with the locally-grown treasure was at Aktaion Restaurant, an unassuming traditional taverna that turned out to to be one of the oldest on the island, built over nearly a century ago. It was there that my wife and I first tasted a traditional korkosela made with eggs, fresh tomato and green bell pepper. It was unlike any dish I have ever had. As a backyard-tomato-farmer, the delicacy sent me into a frenzy to research the mystical Santorini Tomato.

Grace Hotel Discovering the Lost City of Atlantis

3,600 years ago, there was a massive volcanic eruption that devastated Santorini. Many believe the event inspired the mystical legend of Atlantis mentioned in Plato’s dialogues. I’m somewhat of a hopeless romantic for ancient myths like these, and as my husband and I would walk amid Santorini’s white buildings boasting royal blue roofs and views of the endless, glimmering ocean, I couldn’t help but wonder if the story of the lost city of Atlantis was true. The island gifted us a newfound adventurous spirit, and we set out to explore the mysterious, abandoned shipwrecks and hidden, deep-sea treasures of the Aegean Sea.

Grace Hotel Fiesta Forever - Ifestia Festival

While my usual happy hour always starts with a “cheers” and clinked cocktails, our evenings at Grace Hotel included multiple toasts— and not just because it was my birthday week. Every night, I could count on an inevitable second round of glasses to be raised when Santorini’s famed sunset colors called for their own salute. In perfect view from our dining table we would watch as a soft, orange glow met the rich blues of the Aegean Sea and washed the endless horizon in striking color. I remember looking at one another, speechlessly gesturing to the grandeur in awe, thinking that nothing could compete with this view. I was wrong.

Hotel Jerome Fireworks, Sunsets and a 4th Floor Balcony

There is a semi-secret spot at the Jerome on the fourth floor balcony that is a great place to have a drink, watch fireworks or see the sun set down over the valley. It’s a hidden nook and it’s just a sweet place to get some fresh air and look out at the Aspen mountains. You might even find Patrick, our General Manager, up there taking in the beauty of this amazing town, which never gets old - which Patrick should know as he as been here 35 years. PS: Don't let him know that I told you about his secret spot.

Hacienda AltaGracia Saddle Up, Wine Down

See the natural beauty of Costa Rica on horseback

I've been traveling to Costa Rica for almost 30 years, and I've been to plenty of the country's resorts. In all that time, I've never seen a place where both kids and adults can have equally incredible experiences than at Hacienda Alta Gracia. For kids, the stables are the best in Central America. Well-trained and easy for kids to ride and enjoy, my granddaughters fed and brushed the horses following their ride. Plus, a huge bonus - there are almost always baby horses on the property, which are always a hit! Back at the resort, the kids played at Kata Grande, conveniently located near a bar where parents can enjoy!

Hotel Jerome To Sign Your Name on an Aspen Landmark

Next time you’re ordering your favorite cocktail at the J-Bar, ask about “the drawer.” And, after that, ask if your bartender has signed it yet. Famously known for its hundreds of intricately carved signatures, the drawer holds the names of every bartender who has worked in the J-Bar since its opening day in 1889. If you happen to be at the J-Bar at the right time, you might even catch a touring group from the Aspen Historical Society showing it off. Now shellacked to seal it’s inked history, the drawer is an Aspen landmark worth toasting to.

Hacienda AltaGracia Costa Rica Smells Like...

I don't just plan trips, I change lives. When a couple comes to me in need of a romantic getaway, it's especially exciting to plan a travel experience that is not only out-of-the-box and inspiring but that also stops time. An insider tip I love to give my clients is the special opportunity to make their own scrubs at Hacienda AltaGracia's spa. The team of massage therapists assist you in mixing your bathtub blend with lush tropical oils, bottling the scent of Costa Rica for you to take home.

Hotel Jerome Drink Like John Wayne and Order the Crud

The J-Bar has seen it all— silver booms and busts, the Depression, wars, the who’s who of screen stars clinking glasses, and artists of the counter-culture movement lying low. Temporarily turning into a soda fountain during the 1920's, the J-Bar even weathered Prohibition. It was then that miners were known to have tossed back the iconic J-Bar concoction that still remains on the menu: The Aspen Crud. Made of bourbon and vanilla ice cream, the whiskey-spiked milkshake was dreamt up to evade the era’s laws. Today, J-Bar bartenders don’t need to hide their spirits behind walls anymore, but the famed drink still tastes like a secret.

Hacienda AltaGracia Bird-Friendly Brew

“Am I really here? Can you pinch me?” said my husband almost every morning during our coffee-sourcing trip to Hacienda AltaGracia. We came to select the perfect beans for our shop in Vancouver, as Costa Rica is considered one of the best coffee growing regions in the world - it's the only country where it's illegal to produce any type of coffee other than 100 percent Arabica beans. Though we tried the renowned Tarrazú Geisha coffee before - the most expensive coffee ever sold by Starbucks - we came for the bird-friendly beans found in the Perez Zeledon mountains, an area where mountainous terrain and warm temperatures collide to form the ideal conditions for Arabica beans to flourish.
